Overview

The iboss platform is the leading SASE platform that is architecturally based on containerization. Containerization allows iboss to deliver secure connectivity for users anywhere while maintaining a completely isolated and controlled network data path. In addition, a fully containerized architecture allows for natural hybrid deployments where proxy and firewall security features can be delivered within the government network, while leveraging the cloud based service, if needed, for remote users.

Understanding containerization is the key for government networks in need of a highly secure service. With a containerized service like iboss, the network connections from devices and users are processed within isolated containerized gateways which perform proxy and firewall functions. The containerized gateways never process data for any other organization and data is never mixed with that of any other customer.

With alternative SASE platforms that lack containerization, network traffic from multiple organizations are processed within the same gateways that proxy, decrypt and firewall data for other organizations. Mixing data within the gateways that perform functions like decryption not only results in latency but increases security risks.

With a containerized cloud architecture like iboss, full isolation of data is achieved as it moves between users and the cloud, including full isolation of the private keys required to decrypt that traffic. The containerized cloud gateways isolate the private SSL decryption keys to ensure security and reduce risk.
The iboss platform provides a consistent network security stack that is applied to users, regardless of their location, including trusted government operated networks and untrusted remote networks. And because the iboss platform is built on containerization, the source IP Address that is visible to the destination is always dedicated to the government agency.
